Hey whats up guys, this is my first post. I just wanted to ask a stupid question about the Lamy Safari petrol colour, Is it matte or glossy? I'm about to buy my first fountain pen and I was going to buy either the matte charcoal or limited edition petrol colour and I usually prefer matte coloured things. Also let me know which colour you guys prefer as I am quite indecisive of what colour to choose. Thanks guys.

The Petrol Safari is matte like the charcoal. It's an attractive pen. I'd get that myself.

I'd go for the Petrol.  It is a limited edition pen that will only be available for the next few months.  The charcoal, though it looks nice, is a standard color in Lamy's line and you can easily purchase it anytime.


I have a Petrol myself and it is an attractive color.

Extensive coverage of this pen in the Lamy forum. Photos and opinions.
I ride a recumbent, I play go, I use Macintosh so of course I use a fountain pen.
